"The Sealed Room" is a story by Edgar Allan Poe set in the 16th Century in which a Count (Arhtur V. Johnson) has built a windowless room in his castle.
It is a small yet nice and very cozy room, as it is meant to be used to enjoy the love and company of his wife, the Countess (Marion Leonard) in a more private way.
However, the Count doesn't know that his wife is not exactly faithful, as she is infatuated with the Minstrel (Henry B. Walthall) at Court, with whom she is having an affair.
As soon as the Count gets busy with his own business, the Countess calls the Minstrel and both lovers go to enjoy the Count's new room.
When the Count returns, he discovers she is missing and begins to suspect, finally discovering the two lovers in his room; but instead of making a scene, he prefers to remain hidden as he decides that there is a better punishment for his unfaithful wife

Subject: I'd Tap That
Fun film from D.W. Griffith.

Nice sets, nice acting, nice people (except the unfaithful wife) and a nice murderous ending.

Subject: What Poe story?
The only Poe story that sounds somewhat like this is "The Cask of Amontillado". It seems that the plot was radically changed.
